Transcript of Foreshadowing in Romeo and Juliet

Foreshadowing is to show or indicate beforehand.
There are many instances of foreshadowing all through out the play of Romeo and Juliet.
Foreshadowing in Romeo and Juliet Foreshadowing What is it? First Foreshadowing Romeo said, "Life were better ended by thy hate, than death prorogued, wanting of thy love"

This is saying that Romeo would much rather have Juliet's love and die on the spot, than not have her love and die later.

In the end Romeo does die with Juliet by his side and with her love.
#2 "Take thou some new infection to thy eye, and the rank poison
of the old will die." It is foreshadowing that Romeo will drop
Rosaline for Juliet Tybalt says this before leaving the Capulets feast, and promises himself this statement
"Gall"means anything that is extremely bitter, or it can mean poison. It is foreshadowing the death of Romeo by bitter poison because of his "sweet" love for Juliet. "I will withdraw, but this intrusion shall,
now seeming sweet convert to bitter gall" #3 Juliet is pleading with her mother to not marry Paris, and it is also foreshadowing that in the end of the play she will be lying" in that dim monument where Tybalt lies", with Romeo. "O, sweet my mother, cast me not away! Delay this marriage for a month, a week or, if you do not, make the bridal bed in that dim monument where Tybalt lies" #4 Fifth Foreshadowing Juliet says to the Nurse,"If he be married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed."
She means if he is married she will die unmarried because she can't love anyone else, but it foreshadows her death if she marries him. #6 Juliet says, "Methinks I see thee, now thou art below, As one dead in the bottom of a tomb: Either my eyesight fails, or thou look'st pale." Romeo answers "And trust me, love, in my eye so do you." Both Romeo and Juliet are foreshadowing their death, saying they are pale, or close to death. It is one of the more creepy foreshadowings of the play. When Friar Lawrence says, "These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triumph die, like fire and powder."

The Friar is foreshadowing the death of Romeo and Juliet, saying that the "violent delights" are them getting married, and their marriage will have a violent end. Seventh Foreshadowing #8 Number 9 # 10 The most obvious bit of foreshadowing is right at the beginning of the play "From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life."
This gives it away that the pair of lover's in the play are going to die, which is Romeo and Juliet. "So smile the heavens upon this holy act, that after hours with sorrow chide us not!"

Friar Lawrence is foreshadowing the end of the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Which does happen, but only because of the death of Romeo and Juliet. The last main foreshadowing is when Romeo exclaims, "O, I am fortune's fool!" because he recognizes that his life in in the hands of fate now, and he is no longer in control.
